As the temperature increases in the HUD scandals, there inevitably arise the cries to throw out the programs and indeed to damn the agency. One must not lose sight of the successes of HUD over the last 20 years. The problems being unearthed today arise more from neglect of leadership than failure of programs, from pay scales that encourage youthful and inexperienced people to take jobs that appropriately experienced people cannot afford, and from program cutbacks that put a premium on influence peddling to obtain scarce resources.

Brentwood multimillionaire A. Bruce Rozet was having a hard time understanding why so many officials in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development were saying such nasty things about him. For nearly 20 years, Rozet's firm has done large amounts of business with HUD. But now, the agency was attacking the company, threatening to foreclose on two large substandard housing projects in California and banning the firm from doing new business with HUD for one year in Oklahoma and Washington.

Your extensive and well-illustrated article on Waikoloa indicates that "Waikoloa was the fantasy of Christopher B. Hemmeter, the entrepreneur." The fact is that while the Hyatt Regency Waikoloa is his development, the overall development of more than 30,000 acres of formerly volcanic ash, the golf courses, the resurgence of the fishponds, etc., were the dream and development of Boise Cascade more than 20 years ago. Begun with the acquisition of...

Your editorial on Yugoslavia ("West Can't Stand By Silently," Nov. 22) is a good motto, but the text is misguided. I have been to Yugoslavia for four weeklong trips in the last six months. The civil war, like any war, is deplorable and must be stopped. But disenfranchising Yugoslavia and precipitously dismantling it into ethnic ministates is not the answer. Your editorials do not call for dismantling Great Britain because it refuses to accede to an Irish withdrawal or of Spain because it puts down attempts at Basque separations.

As the party with the most accurate knowledge of the history of Belle Haven Apartments in Prince George's County, Md., and of its current operations, I must strongly object to the recent, unwarranted mischaracterization of the apartment complex in "Secretary of Commerce Linked to Slum Housing" (April 9). Belle Haven is a thriving apartment community, home to 250 families of mostly low and moderate income. The community is composed primarily of hard-working families who are a genuine aid to management in maintaining Belle Haven as a desirable place to live.

Atty. Gen. Janet Reno has ordered Justice Department investigators to expand their investigation of Commerce Secretary Ronald H. Brown to pursue evidence that he may have illegally concealed his investment in a trouble-plagued, low-income apartment complex in suburban Maryland, according to knowledgeable sources. The order was issued earlier this week in response to reports that Brown had reported his investment on his annual financial disclosure forms inaccurately.

The head of a company that controls tens of thousands of subsidized housing units for the poor announced Wednesday he is divesting himself of most of the dwellings after accusing the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development of trying to drive him out of business and making him a "scapegoat" for HUD's own problems.

Disgruntled shareholders began to call for the resignation of the chairman of ICN Pharmaceuticals Inc. on Monday, saying that allegations of fraud and insider trading have rendered the company's founder incapable of leading ICN out of its latest crisis.

Glickenhaus is president of Glickenhaus & Co., a New York investment firm that holds nearly 900,000 ICN shares. Glickenhaus & Co.'
